Nike: Just Do It!

Phil Knight, the founder of Nike, reportedly will be donating over a $100Mn to the Stanford Business School. It is believed to be the largest donation ever to a B-School.

The rise of Knight and Nike is interestingly chronicled at this link. Most interesting story from Knight: "A few years ago there was a poll in China to name the greatest man ever. The winner was Mao, but there was a tie for second between [revolutionary hero] Zhou Enlai and Michael Jordan of the Chicago Red Oxen!".
